5. Without even trying, mysteriously accumulating a collection of these books:
6. Drinking some Sunny D from one of these classy AF cups...
7. ...and eating your afternoon snack on one of these:
8. Learning all the words to your favorite songs — and rewatching them over and over — with the original YouTube, Disney’s Sing Along Songs videos:

And let's be honest, your parents probably sang along to them too.

11. The absolute struggle of trying to open a brand-new one of these without cutting yourself to pieces:

15. Finding one of these at the bottom of your cereal box and watching it change color when you ate breakfast:
16. Getting enthused whenever your copy of Disney Adventures came in the mail.
Or getting it as a reward for being good while grocery shopping with your parents.
17. The excitement of walking into your mall's Disney Store and rushing to the back to see what was playing on the big screen.
Hopefully Mom would let you pick out something good ;)
...and of course, saving the cool bag to use later:
18. Watching the two sequels to Aladdin over and over again on VHS, because they were AMAZING follow-ups (no joke):
Sorry not sorry.
19. Cracking open what you thought was the finest literature at the time, complete with ~magical~ sound effects:
20. Wishing you were Powerline and jamming out to "Stand Out" and "I-2-I" every time you watched A Goofy Movie:
